For the the third consecutive time the World Championships will be contested between the nations of Canada and hosts Finland.

 
 
 
 

The teams are set for the the final game in The Nokia Arena in Tampere as Finland will take on Canada.

Finland won in 2019, but Canada got the better of Finland last year. This is the first time in nine hostings that Finland will win a medal on home ice. The question now is: will it be gold or silver?

In the semi finals during a hard fought back and forth clash Finland came out on top over USA.

Defenseman Miro Heiskanen set the pace with a goal and two assists.

USA got the first marker but Finland tied it up in the last minutes of the first period. Then roared on by the partisan Finnish crowd the Suomi side closed out the game.

In the later final Czechia looked good value for their early lead but Canada tied things up late in the fist period as Dylan Cozens followed up his own rebound to score.

Then indiscipline hit he Czechia side and two powerplay goals either side of a David Lowry five on five goal. Cole Sillinger increased the Canadian lead 3:56 into the third

And at 5-1 the tie looked all but over and when Paternak missed a penalty shot and Cozens made it six it was all over.
